production in other ouartcr* and tho consequent dimi
notion in tho value of your land«, were the Bole circct of the
Tariff law«. The effect of tlioso laws was confessedly injuri
, but the evil was greatly exaggerated by the unfounded
theory you were taught to believe, that its burthens
proportion to your exports, not to your consumption of import
ed articles. Your pride was roused by the assertion that a
submission to those laws was a stato of vassalage, and that re
instance to them was equal in patriotic merit, to the oppositon
our Fathers offered to the oppressive laws of Great Britain.
You were told that this opposition might be peaceably—
might bo constitutionally made—that you might enjoy all the
advantages of the Union and bear none of its burthens. Elo
quent appeals to your passions, to your State pride, in your
native courage, to your sense of real injury, were used to pre
pare you for the period when the mask which concealed the
hidoous features of disunion, should be taken off. It fell, and
you were made to look with complacency on objects which
long since you would have regarded with horror. Look
back to the arts which havo brought you to this state—look
forward to the consequences to which it must inevitably lead !
Look back to what was first told you as an inducement to
enter into this dangerous .course. The great political truth
was repeated to you, that you had the revolutionary right of
resisting all laws that were palpably unconstitutional and
intolerably oppressive—it was added that the right to nullify
• law rested on the same principle, but that it wus a peace
able remedy ! This character which was given to it, made
you reçoive with too much confidence the assertions that
made of the unconstitulionality of the law and its oppressive
effects. Mark, my fellow-citizons, that by tho admission of
your leaders the unconstitulionality
will not justify eitlier resistance or nullification ! What is the
meaning of tho word palpable in the senso in which it is here
used 7—that which is apparent to every one, that which no
gym of ordinary intellect will fail to perceive. Is the uncon
stitutionality of these laws of tliat description 7 Let those

them choose whether they will bo considered os incapable,
then.of perceiving that which must have been apparent to every
man of common understiuiding, or as imposing upon your
confidence and endeavouring to mislead you now. In cither
cose they are unsafe guides in the perilous path they urge you
to tread. Ponder well on this circumstance, ana you will
know how to appreciate tho exaggerated language they ad
dress to you. They are not champions of liberty emulating
the fiune of our Revolutionary Fathers, nor are you on oppres
sed people contending, as they repeat to you, against worse
than colonial vassalage. You are free members of a flourish
ing and happy Union. There is no settled design to oppress
you. You have indeed felt tho unequal ojieration of laws
"which may have been unwisely, not unconstitutionally passed;
but that inequality must necessarily be removed. At the very
moment when you
approved and advocated the
course you had begun, a change in public opinion had
ccd. Tho noarly approaching payment of tho public debt,
and tho consequent necessity of a diminution of duties, had al*
ready produced a considerable reduction, and tliat too
articles of general consumption in your State. The importance
of this change was underrated, and ysu
told that no thither alleviation of your burthens
pcctcd at the very time wlien the condition of the country im*

reduce them to a just and equitable scale. But, os if apprehen*

I have urged you to look back to the means that
to hurry you on to the possition you havo
forward to the consequences -it will produce. Something
is necessary. Contomplato the condition of that country of
which you still form an important part!—consider its govern
ment uniting in one bond of common interest and general pro
tection so many difl'erent Stales—giving to ull their inhabitants
the proud title of American citizen —protecting their
merce—securing their literature und their arts—facilitating
tlicir intercommunication, defending their frontiers—and
king their name respected in tlie remotest parts of the earth !
Consider the extent of its territory, its increasing and happy
population, its advance in arts which render litë agreeable,
and the sciences which clevute the mind ! See education
spreading the lights of religion, morality, and general inlbr
mation intoevery cottage in this wide extent of our Territo
and States ! Behold it as the asylum where tlie wretched
,_and the oppressed find a refuge and support !
picture ot happiness and honor, and say, we, too,
America— Carolina is one of these proud States, her
have defended—her best blood has cemented this happy
Union ! Arid then add, if you can, witiiout horror and remorse,
this happy Union we will dissolve—this picture of peace und
prosperity we will deface—this free intercourse wo will inter
rupt—these fertile fields we will deluge with blood—tlie pro
tection of that glorious'fiag we renounce—tlie very name of
Americans we discard. And for what, inistuken men ! for
what do you throw away these estimable blessings—for what
would you exchange your share in the advantages and honor
of tho Union 7 For the dream of a sepurate indciicndcncc—a
dream interrupted hy bloody conflicts with yo
and a vile dependence on a foreign power. If your
could succeed in establishing a separation, what would be
your situation ? Arc you united at home—are you free from
the apprehension of ci vil discord, with all its fearful conse
quences 7 Do our neighboring republics, every day suffering
revolution or contending with
lion—do they excite your envy 7 But the dictates of a liigh
duty oblige me solemnly to announce to you that y
succeed. The laws of tlie United States must be executed. I
have no discretionary power on tlie subject—my duty i
phatically pronounced in tho Constitution. Those who told
you that you might peaceably prevent their execution decci
ved you—they could not have been deceived themselves. They
know tliat a tbrcible opposition could alone prevent tho execu
tion of tho laws, and they know that such opposition must be
repelled. Their object is disunion : hut be not deceivod by
liâmes : disunion by armed force, is treason. Are you really
ready to incur its guilt? If you are, on the heads of tlie insu
£ alors of tlie act bo tho dreadful consequences—on their heads
a the dishonor, but on yours may fall the punishment; on y
unhappy State will fall all the evils of tho conflict you fc
upon the Government of your country. It cannot accede to
the mad project of. disunion of which you would be the first
victims—its first Magistrate cannot, if ho would, avoid the
performance of his duty—tho consoquenccs
for you, distressing to your follow citizens hero, and to the
friends of good government throughout the world. Its
mies have beheld our prosperity with a vexation they could
not conceal—it was a standing refutation of their slavish doc
trines, and they will point to our discord with the triumph of
malignant joy. It is yet in your power to disappoint them.
There is yet time to show that the descendants of the Pinck
neys, tlie Sumpters, the Rutlcges, and of the thousand other
namoB which adorn the pages of your revolutionary history,
will not abandon that Union to support which, so many of them
fought and bled and died. I adjure you as you honor their
memory—as you love tho cause of freedom, to which thoy de
dicated their lives—as you prize the peace of your country,
the live» of its best citizens, and your own fair fame, to retrace
your steps. Snatch from the archives of your State the disor
ganizing edict of its Convention—bid its members to rc-osscm
ble and promulgate the decided expressions of your will to re
main in the path which alone can conduct you to safety, pros
perity and honor—tell them tliat compared to disunion, all
other evils are light, because that brings with it
tion of all—declare that you will
the star spangled banner of your country Bhall float
—that you will not be stigmatized when dead, and dishonored
and scorned whilo you livo, as the authors of the first attack
on the Constitution of your country !—Its destroyers you can
not be. You may disturb its peace—you may interrupt tho
course of its prosperity—you may cloud its reputation for sta
bility—but its tranquility will be restored, its prosperity will
return, and the stain upon its national character will be trans
ferred and remain an eternal blot on the memory of those who
caused the disorder.

aud os tlie claim was asserted of a right by a State to annul

Fellow-citizens ! The momentous

THE PRESIDENT'S PROCLAMATION.
We have the gratification of laying before
to-day's paper, General Jackson's Proclamation, with regard
to South Carolina. We do net hesitate i

the Farewell Address of the Father of his Country. It will
live to counsel posterity, to perpetuate and endear to the future
friends of civil Liberty tho name of its Author, when all the
monuments of marble, dedccatcd to his memory, shall have
long aince crumbled to dust. Tlie kind and ftithorly admoni
tions which it contains, its pathetic, warning and patriotic ap
peals, and its stern and frank acknowledgment of the high
and imperative obligations of duty, must address themselves
powerfully and effectually to tlie good sense, reason and judg

animated tho hearts, and the generous and patriotic views
which inspired the minds of tliat matchless band of revolu
tionary worthies, who spilt their blood and pledged their for
and sacred honours for us and our posterity, if these
not overwhelmed and swept away by the whirlwind of fac
tion, the sons of South Carolina well yet forbear and retrace
tlicir hasty steps. Yet, they must shrink with horror from
the idea of iinbrucing their hands in a brother'* blood, in de
fence of tlie baseless fabric of their visional y scheme.
Among all parties there seems to be but one prevalent opin
ion with regard to this document. With scarcely

Some few zealots, blinded by disappointment or misled by
factious opposition, have ventured to launch against it petty
insinuations or trivial criticism. Bat the great moss of our
